CRIME: Robbery at LanTech Gaming Centre
DATE: November 6, 2005
RCMP FILE: 2005-60525

Just after midnight on November 6, a man entered LanTech Gaming Centre on Bernard Avenue and placed a black plastic bag on the front counter. He then produced a syringe filled with what appeared to be blood. The suspect told the clerk it contained HIV and demanded money from the till. As he was leaving with the stolen money, patrons and staff struggled with the suspect and managed to take away the syringe. He then pulled a butcher knife and fled westbound on Bernard, dropping the knife after a short distance. The suspect is described as Caucasian, 30 – 40 years old, 6’ tall, slim to medium build, clean-shaven. He was wearing a dark blue hoodie, light blue pant and white runners.
